Give the gift of a unique personalized family album.
Use this unique gift to capture your treasured family moments for a lifetime. This personalized family album can be customized to suit your family with a personalized engraving. You can select a text design that captures a unique family theme and fill your album with photos and stories over the years to be handed down to the next generation. This personalized handmade wooden family album is made to order out of hand cut, sanded, and stained wooden sheets. The stain is applied to the wood in a laying technique to give the wood a rustic, yet chic appearance. The spine of each book is made with premium genuine cowhide leather and it is rubbed with mink oil to give it a rustic sheen and to bring out a nice leathery smell. Metal hinges or a tied leather braid can be used for the hinge. Please see my other listing for examples of what the braided hinge albums looks like. Once your book cover has been made, your name or a personalized message can be engraved into the front cover. This wedding album is approximately 10" X 11.5"
Each book comes with your choice of cardstock, cardstock overlaid with clear acid free album sheets, or archival quality acid free 8.5" X 11" photo sleeves. This book is made to have very rustic look and is made to hold a large number of pages while opening flat. This custom book is made with a hinged back cover so the pages lay flat when the book is opened for better viewing. This book can be made with up to 200 album pages, 140 cardstock pages with spacers (spacers are to account for the thickness of photos), 200 pages of only cardstock only (all of these books come with spacers with the exception of this option), and up to 100 pages of cardstock and clear sheets with spacers. The book shown in the images above has 100 Album pages.
*The best option for a standard album is "album pages" shown in the open book image above.
---=== Urgent Orders===---
If you need your book urgently, you can upgrade to a priority order with Xpresspost shipping. Over night shipping is also an option. To make a request for an urgent order listing please contact me and I will do my best to accommodate you.
---=== PAGE OPTIONS ===---
Premium acid free cardstock
- The pages are hand creased premium heavyweight cardstock that will not degrade your photos, writing, or artwork over time.
This is a good option for a guest book, journal, or sketchbook. To select this option choose “cardstock” in the page options drop-down menu.
Premium cardstock with archival quality clear plastic over each page
- This option includes alternating pages of premium cardstock (described above) and clear archival plastic sheets (every second page is clear plastic). This option makes it easy to access the cardstock to write on or adjust photos, but still adds a layer of protection when viewing the contents of the book. Both the cardstock and the plastic are acid free/archival quality and will not degrade your photos, writing, or artwork over time.
This is a great option for guest books, poetry books, sketchbooks where smudging may be an issue, photo albums, or any book where easy access to delicate archival material is ideal. To select this option choose “cardstock/clear”.
Clear archival quality acid free photo pockets
- This option includes scrapbook style photo pockets (one large pocket encasing premium heavyweight cardstock). These clear pockets are inserted with off-white cardstock and they are ideal for photo albums, baby books, scrapbooks, and archival of any delicate material. To select this option, choose “album pages”.
Photo pockets can be used in wedding guest books if you plan to add pictures to/and it or the pages are being filled out then added to the book at a later time, otherwise this option is not recommended for guest books. Removing the cardstock from the protective sleeves and then re-inserting it can make signing your guest book a hassle.
If you have any questions about the page options above, or you would like to request a different kind of paper to fill your book with, please send me a message. I am happy to answer any questions.
Alternative page options:
Specialty paper such as artist paper, premium rich-black cardstock, or torn edge pages are also available. Please send me a message to inquire about these options.
---=== NOTES ===---
I can add a customized engraving to the front and/or back cover of this book for you or I can leave it plain if you would like. Check out my other listings for alternate font options. Send me a message to inquire about different staining options and metal and leather embellishments. You can take a look at my other listings to get a sense of what pieces I have available for corners and latches and what the leather and metal hinges look like. Send me a message describing what you would like and if I can make it for you, I will create you a custom listing. If You don't have any special requests just send me a message in checkout telling me what you would like engraved on your book. Don't forget to choose your font and hinge type :)
I take bulk orders (2-20+), just send me a message to make arrangements.
The word 'wisdom' appears on the back cover. Wisdom is my last name and my way of signing (or branding) my work. I wont include this if you don't want me to. Just send me a message asking me to exclude it.
Paypal and Etsy direct are the preferred methods of payment. Currently I do not accept money orders.
Everything in my shop is made in, and ship from, Canada. If you are having your item shipped outside of Canada, please be aware of the import duties that may be charged to you by your country. I will not cover these charges under any circumstances.
Please complete your payment as soon as possible. I will not start the creation process on your project until payment has been processed and we have communicated details about your project. If I do not receive payment and communication within one week of the order being placed, I will cancel the order.
All orders will be shipped to your Etsy Address. If you would like to arrange for delivery to another address, please contact me to make arrangements.
Please provide a contact phone number with your order. This number will only be used by the courier delivering your package in case of difficulty delivering your package. The courier will only guarantee delivery times if a contact number has been provided.
Since everything I create is made to order and each project can take several weeks to complete, creation + shipping time should be taken into consideration if you need your order by a certain date. If you require rush delivery on an item, please contact me to make arrangements (an additional fee may apply).
Contact me to upgrade your shipping to Priority or Express and tracking.
International shipments outside of Canada and the US are shipped with International Parcel - Surface service and can take up to 3 months to be delivered depending on the country you are in. Larger items may also incur additional shipping fees which will be noted before your project is started. If you need to receive your order quickly you can upgrade the shipping on your package by requesting a shipping upgrade in addition to priority processing.
Shipments to Canada and the US using standard ground shipping typically take 1-10 business days to arrive at their destination. Upgrades to express and overnight shipping services are available (additional fees apply). A different courier and service from the one you selected may be used depending on couriers' history of delivering packages safely and on time to your area - Rustic Engravings will make this call and may contact you if a different shipping method from the one you chose is recommended.
All customs fees will be paid by buyer. If your item is not picked up from the post office or it has an incorrect address, and it is sent back to me as a result, a second shipping fee will be charged to send your package a second time.
Although Rustic Engravings does ship to the US, there may be an additional charge for shipping to Alaska, Hawaii, or Puerto Rico. Also, if you live in an extremely rural area, there is a very small chance that I will not be able to ship to you or there will be an additional fee to cover the extra postage. If you live in the absolute middle of nowhere and you think shipping to your address may incur additional fees, send me a message and I will double check for you. I will not add on any fees without your permission.
Request a cancellation within: 2 days of purchase
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
Since the items sold in my store are custom made to order art pieces, no returns will be accepted under any circumstances. These pieces are custom made usable artwork and I check everything before I send it out and I will only ship products that meet my high standards of quality.
Since all items are made to order, wood grain will differ from the example image but I always try to select wood with an interesting grain pattern so each book will have character. Note that creative liberties are taken in the creation of each piece. The coloring and texture of your piece will vary from the original listing as well as from the mockup design. When you are purchasing one of my pieces, you are ordering a unique, customized, made-to-order art piece. If your book contains screws, please note that screw color may also vary. Screws may be black or brass depending on what I have in stock. Screw color is not guaranteed but if you prefer a specific color please send me a message and I will try to accommodate your request.
I can only refund items that are damaged during shipping if you, the recipient, open the package with the mail carrier present and initiate a damage claim through the mail carrier. I can issue a refund once that claim has been resolved.
Please be aware of your country's import laws. Rustic Engravings will not issue a refund for any package that is held at the boarder due to import restrictions. Note that as of 2019 USA import laws have become more strict. All products sold by Rustic Engravings comply with USA import regulations however, you may be required to fill out an additional customs form for importing wooden products to the USA which can delay your package. If you are concerned about a delay, please contact me as soon as possible.
I am happy to work with you to create a custom order. I can also take bulk orders.
If you are having trouble sending me a message using Etsy, please send your message through rusticengravings.com or send a message directly to firstname.lastname@example.org.

To place an order, first, select the listing for the style of book or sign you like, then select the options and add your piece to your cart. Include a description of the text/engraving you would like. Everything you see in the example images is an included option for any book or sign, but if you would like something engraved that you don't see, you can go to the add-ons section and add a custom graphic to your order. Be sure to include a high resolution image of what you would like engraved or a description of what you would like. Once your order is processed you'll receive a few mockups to confirm your engraving design - this is where it can bee tweaked to perfection. You'll get tracking info as soon as your piece is ready to ship.
Detailed descriptions and photos are given in each listing as well as recommendations for certain projects. Please see listings for details.
